"Upset I put this down to read the other book, now it's on hold. Really enjoying it, and it shouldn't be taking this long. Want to return to it; it's delightful." Aug 12, 2014 06:39AM

The, um, flaying scene will be with me for a while.

Lots of amazing pieces in here, and innovative uses of LEGO.
Just look for yourself before handing over to kids..."dark" is right.

Disjointed, but with interesting characters and good stories into which you can your teeth. A good diversion.

This book didn't have to be quite so pink. It's chicky, sure, but it has an honest character arc with an intelligent protagonist who is interested in more than the brands of clothes she wears. And we're well beyond the cupcake - think brisket instead ...more

Take as many small-town secrets (adultery, teen mothers, wrong-side-of-tracks, etc.) as you can think of and make them all happen to two sisters. Add a pinch of self-pity, a golden heir-to-a-horse-farm winking from the hilltop, and a dead momma, and ...more

“And don't tell me the end justifies the means because it doesn't. We never reach the end. All we ever get is means. That's what we live with.”
Nick Harkaway, Angelmaker

Nick Harkaway
“His grandfather was scathing about "speculative faith," which is the kind you get from worrying about the possibility that God exists and may be cross with you. Daniel Spork observed that God, if there is one, is well aware of the interior dialogue, and most likely unimpressed by it. Much better, he said, to get on with being the man you are, and hope like buggery that God thinks you did as well as could be expected. Hence all the lessons and strictures concealed in everyday objects. _Learn the shape of the world, know the mind of God._”
Nick Harkaway, Angelmaker

“Then from far away across the world he smelled good things to eat, so he gave up being king of the wild things.”
Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are

“My grandfather says that's what books are for," Ashoke said, using the opportunity to open the volume in his hands. "To travel without moving an inch.”
